A beautiful red Buick Sail sedan, Spotted in China in the eastern suburbs of Beijing. The old Sail was in a very good shape, and it is indeed the best Sail sedan I have ever seen. Paintwork was clean, nothing broken and no rust, everything original or period original, and she wears white license plates!

A very fuzzy Buick Sail sedan, Spotted in China in the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing. The good Sail has been sexed up to the max by a carbon-fiber wrapped bonnet, black painted A-B-C pillars, black painted window frames, black doorhandles, and a huge wing on the back. This is a Sail we like!

Here we have a rather extreme Chevrolet Sail hiding behind a tree in a suburb of Shanghai, but we can see it anyway! The Chevy is sexed up with a gigantic body kit that turns the small family hatchback in some kinda horror racer. That’s at least 10 kilo plastic. Other fastmakers include a fake air intake on the rood, fake air intakes on the bonnet and chromed mirrors.

We knew it was coming but now it is 100% sure, the new Shanghai-GM EV-brand will be called ‘Springo’. Their first yet nameless car is based on the Chevrolet Sail and will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show later this month. There will be more electric vehicles in the future, Chinese media says Shanghai-GM will outline their “green technology strategy” at the Guangzhou show.

Well, if this doesn’t make my day. The new Chevrolet Sail is here. New grille, new bumpers, updated interior and… parking sensors at the back! Fi-nal-ly. Price starts at 72.300 yuan and ends at 79.300 and that ain’t cheap for such a small car. Engines: 1.2 with 87hp or a 1.4 with 103hp. No thunder indeed.

The Chevrolet Sail hatchback and sedan will get a small facelift. Bumpers slightly changed, new alloys, and… parking sensors. The current Sail doesn’t have those. Parking sensors are a must in China where basically nobody knows how to drive a car, let alone park it.

Shanghai-GM brought a Chevrolet Sail EV Concept to the Guangzhou Auto Show. The show was not as green as the Beijing show in April, it seems Chinese carmakers realize they can’t sell EV’s because customers have no place to charge them. Still, good old Chevrolet made a Sail EV concept, based on the Sail hatch with some extra spoilers. Full electric, max power is 65kw, max torque is 220nm, top speed is 130km, range is 150km. Shanghai-GM came up with a new slogan: “Drive to Green”. Catchy.

Mr Kevin E. Wale, president of GM China, told magazine Beijing Morning Post that Shanghai-GM is working on a electric Chevrolet Sail which will debut this year. A concept still but very likely to see production in the near future. Mr Wale also unveiled that GM China is working on a hybrid Buick Lacrosse, to be released in 2011. [file photo]

Kind of out that is ’cause I don’t think SAIC-GM wanted to world to see just yet. The Sail hatchback will debut at the Beijing Auto Show at the end of this month but this not too good looking silver car was seen somewhere near the factory in Shanghai.
